Syngenta Professional Pest Management (PPM) last week announced new leadership appointments for three of its employees and a newcomer to its technical services team.

Twenty-five year employee Pat Wilenbrock will head PPM for Syngenta in North America. She will be responsible for the PPM business marketing team that launches and develops new products and programs, interacts with key stakeholders, and is responsible for hitting financial goals. In her previous positions at Syngenta, she has been in PPM for a decade where she set marketing strategies, led new product introductions and was in charge of marketing research and data analytic teams.

Gregg Wisniewski is the new insecticides brand manager, which means he will work with product development managers, market managers and others to ensure long-term goals for the insecticide portfolio are met throughout Syngenta's Lawn and Garden markets. Wisniewski has been with Syngenta since 2012.

As the new market manager of PPM for Syngenta, Steve Dorer will be responsible for the business and marketing plans in PPM with the goal of driving up business. Before this new appointment, Dorer was the territory manager for the Turf and Landscape business within Syngenta for over nine years.

Finally, the new southeast technical service manager of PPM is a newcomer to Syngenta, Chris Keefer. His priority in this new role will be the technical support of a territory that encompasses 10 states, from North Carolina to Florida and west to Texas. He will use his 11 years of experience as a research scientist in urban entomology at Texas A&M University to best serve Syngenta.

“Our business is as strong as our leaders," Scott Reasons, Syngenta's head of Lawn and Garden products for the Americas, said. "These four individuals bring a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to the table in their new roles, and we’re excited to continue growing the PPM business with their support and leadership.”
